New Tony Bennett DVD out November 19

Nov 15 2012

Legendary singer Tony Bennett will release a DVD version of his film The Zen of Bennett via RPM/Columbia Records on November 19.  The film, which premiered to positive critical and audience reactions at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, also debuted in theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco among others this fall. The DVD version includes exclusive bonus footage of deleted scenes, including clips of Tony with Michael Buble and Lady Gaga as well as interviews with the filmmakers.  The Zen of Bennett is an intimate perspective on Tony's life and personal philosophy.  Filmed by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe, the documentary employs a voyeuristic approach while illustrating the isolation experienced by the artist in the midst of the recording sessions for his #1 album Duets II.  Bennett's creative process is revealed while recording duets with his guest artists including John Mayer, Lady Gaga, Michael Buble and the late Amy Winehouse.  Tony's next performances are scheduled for this weekend (November 17-18) in Westbury, New York.
